The Turkusowe Kwiaty is a beautifully sweet and summery piece, featuring a delectable floral in bubblegum shades of blue and pink, with smaller pops of bluebell, sunny yellow, blush pink and rose red. The straps, band elastic and bows are bubblegum blue, while the cups are trimmed with bright pink lace, which I think is a really fun and eye-catching combination! Continue reading →
A while back now, Ewa Michalak released the BM cut, an unpadded style featuring a stretch lace upper – a construction which I am always a huge fan of! So, of course, I had to try it out for myself. One style I was particularly lusting after was the BM Gwiezdny Pył, so I was overjoyed when one reader very kindly bought it off my wishlist. Here’s how I found it!
My usual size in the S and SM styles is 70K (32K), but due to the stretch lace upper, I decided to try this in a slightly smaller size of 70JJ (32JJ), with the size 42 (14) thong. Continue reading →
My last Ewa Michalak review was of the S Wiśniówka over a year ago, and while I adored the bra and found it both stunning and supportive, my boobs grew and I stopped fitting into it seemingly immediately. While I have longed for more EMs ever since then, not knowing which size I’d need, the possibility of size inconsistencies, and the price of custom ordering kept putting me off. That is, until I saw some of the amazing styles that had been released, and last year’s SM Burek on sale. So, taking a risk, I ordered two bras in a 70K.
This is the absolutely stunning SM Burek. I have been in love with this bra ever since I first saw it, and looking at these pictures, I don’t think it’s hard to explain why! Larger-cupped versions of bras can easily end up losing their delicate appearance, but this bra manages to stay beautifully sweet and romantic in every size. Continue reading →
Curvy Kate are a fairly young brand in the full-bust world, but they are constantly coming out with new styles and revamping the older ones. The Gia is a style that was introduced in Autumn 2012, and I’ve been eyeing it since. However, at the start of my bra-fitting journey, I had found that I did not get along with many of Curvy Kate’s earlier styles, and with plenty of other bras that fit me at a 30JJ, I saw no reason to take a risk…until I went up to a 30K/KK about a year ago, and suddenly found that my options became much more limited. So, seeing it on sale in August last year, I decided to try out both the Seafoam and Cherry/Blush colourways. This is mostly a quick comparison of the bras I tried while looking for a good fit, so won’t be quite as detailed as my usual reviews.
When I was first fitted as a 30JJ, it was relatively easy to find bras that worked for me. Somehow, going up just 1-2 cups has made so many of my favourite bras unwearable, and forced me to look around for a new favourite bra. I covered some of the bras I tried out back in July, and around the same time, I decided to try the Panache Jasmine. The Panache Jasmine is a full-cup bra, available in 30-38 D-K. Full-cup construction isn’t usually known for giving a good shape, but full-cups with side-sling support are another story, giving lots of shaping and uplift. In this bra, the top section of the cup is made with stretch lace, which allows the bra to work for a variety of breast shapes.
At the time of purchasing I was between a 30K/KK in most bras (30L in Bravissimo Alana), so I first decided to try a 30K.
This is the Bravissimo exclusive Red/Floral colourway. At first glance it seemed to be a reasonably good fit, giving a naturally uplifted shape. Continue reading →
